Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni
My skin barrier was damaged by sun last year.
Long recovery road using Avene and mild products
Went to beauty saloon for facial, fibre facial cotton scraped my skin barrier and made it even more sensitive.
cheeks been feeling tight and experience skin peeling. Used Cerave to repair skin barrier but skin still can’t lock in moisture. ie constantly dehydrated and tight even if I use HA/Squalane everyday.
Searched online, other people with similar symptoms were prescribed oral meds like doxycycline hyclate by their dermatologist.
MAIN QUESTION: Do dermatologists in Malaysia prescribe oral meds like Doxycycline, Compound Glycyrrhizin, Levocetirizine Hydrochloride Tablets?
Greetings! Thank you for your questions.
The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.
First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. From your complaints, your skin condition may have multifactorial causes such as:
This is the most common cause for skin peeling. Sunburn occurs due to prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun without adequate protection (sunblock or sunscreen.) UV rays will kill your skin cells, which can cause redness and burning. Dead skin begins to peel off and new skin cells will replace it.
Burning Effects of Chemicals
It is another reason for skin peeling. Skin peeling is to get rid of damaged skin and may cause skin blisters before the skin begins to peel off.
Topical treatments such as retinoids and benzoyl peroxide are the cause of exfoliating skin. This treatment, which is used to control acne and wrinkles, tends to cause dry skin and cause flaking.
When your skin is dry, the top layer does not get enough hydration because it is exposed to cold weather. This will lead to the acquisition of premature skin cells, resulting in skin peeling.
Allergic reactions can also cause the skin to flake off. You may be allergic to the product you are using and may not be aware of it.
Skin diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, and seborrheic dermatitis often result in itchy, sweaty skin that results in flaky skin. These inflammatory skin conditions may be chronic, and some of them may not be curable. However, they can be well controlled.
Skin specialists or dermatologists in Malaysia will prescribe oral medications that you have mentioned above, according to your skin condition, if needed. However, in order doctors to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, doctors need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor for full examination. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
